For Tuesday, August 29th, 2017
ON THE BRIGHT SIDE
The moments of our lives may be bright with possibility, dark with fear or sadness, or even plain everyday gray, but God's glory never fades. May God's glory shine into the exciting lights, upsetting darks, and boring grays of your every day.

23 DAYS UNTIL FALL
Life is a Special Occasion!
It’s Individual Rights day which honors John Locke, whose philosophical writings argued for the rights of each single human being. He held that basic rights include life, liberty, property, freedom of speech, freedom of religion and freedom to petition government.
THOUGHT FOR TODAY
I believe that every right implies a responsibility; every opportunity, an obligation; every possession, a duty.
John D. Rockefeller, Jr.
I believe that we all are created equal and are all uniquely and wonderfully made. We are all special! Our lives are a gift and what we do with that life is up to us. We have responsibilities as well as rights.
I think it all boils down to the Golden Rule to treat others as we would want to be treated. Living by the Golden Rule will make you a better person, will make those around you happier, and will make the community you live in a better place.
Today may be another one of those rainy days here so the yard work will probably put off till tomorrow. Last week I skipped it all together as it really didn’t need it, but now it’s looking like there is some work to be done out there.
It’s good to have time indoors too as there is always something to do. I’ll be trying to get some housework done while it’s raining so I have it done when the sun shines.
I hope you all have a TERRIFIC Tuesday!
It’s More Herbs, Less Salt Day which promotes use of healthy herbs over salts.
Late August is a very appropriate time to celebrate this special day. The harvest of garden herbs is at a peak. There's nothing better than fresh garden herbs in your favorite recipes. And, we all should have less salt in our diets.
There really isn't a substitute for salt, but since many people find salt free diets very bland , herbs will give that little bit of extra flavor you'll be looking for. Give it a week or so, and you won't need anything but the natural flavour of food, which is wonderful! You don't have to stick like glue to the recipe below. Basically, just select which herbs you like, and wing it.
